Overview

Chefs John Besh and Aarón Sánchez team up to bring Mexican food with Creole flair to Nola's Central Business District at Johnny Sánchez, a mash-up of their names. A colorful mural centers a dining room marked by aqua, green and hot pink chairs in keeping with the vivid flavors of dishes like crawfish enchiladas or crispy Brussels sprouts and roasted pumpkin in charred jalapeño vinaigrette.
